So... now that www/linux-flashplugin* are gone, I was hoping to get
opinions on which alternative flashplayer(s) are reasonably good.
firefox and would prefer a plugin for it... but am generally
in the state of any flash player. I know there are a handful in
just wanted some opinions.
Could anyone please offer their opinion on
- which alternative they are using
- comment(s) on installation ease (or lack thereof)
- is it a standalone or plugin
I missed it. Why is www/linux-flashplugin* gone?

These ports have been removed because the End User License Agreement
explicitly forbids to run the Flash Player on FreeBSD.

Good grief! Is this even under linux-emulatio? Oughtta read
the URL. WHat a pain!
Seriously. But there it is, in section 3.a.(D) of the given URL:
"You may not use the Software on ... any operating system that
is not an Authorized Operating System."
I wonder why Macromedia felt the need to pay their lawyers to add this
clause. I will email them and ask, if I can find a way to do so.
Serious question: If one already happened to have this package
installed, could he hold onto it by editing pkgtools.conf to contain
HOLD_PKGS = [
Legally? I'm no lawyer... but the EULA seems rather explicit. I'd say no.
Would that hold it? Well yes, I believe so. (Or at least something very
similar). In fact you could go so far (not that I'm condoning it) as to
tuck the distfiles away.
Either way... I hope somehow they see fit to loosen the language a bit
in the future.
